PROGRAM PRINCIPLES / A FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS

Regardless of science, practical experience or opinion, a sound Performance Training program rests its foundation on principles that are geared towards team success. These 10-principles lay the groundwork for any coach to successfully fulfill their quest for personal and professional excellence.

PREVENTIVE

Keep players in the training facility and competitive arena by minimizing the time lost due to injury.

BALANCED
Train all areas of the body to ensure proper alignment and correct positioning
Address weaknesses, asymmetries and deficiencies before they lead to injury.

PURPOSEFUL
Improve the mastery of the sport itself.
Quality over Quantity. The ultimate success of the athlete is not determined by weight room or field numbers, but individual and team success.

ADAPTABLE
Have the ability to modify training protocols based on any situation placed before the staff (including but not limited to injuries, facilities, time allotment or coach’s discretion.)
